Shabby Chic Tri Fold Card

Hi everyone! The card I am sharing with you is a tri fold card. I have always wanted to try one. After seeing the latest Waltzingmouse sketch, it was a perfect time to have a go.

I had downloaded some shabby chic papers, and some had a duck egg blue tone, a colour which I adore. After creating the card base, I added the background paper leaving a slight border. I used distress ink to ink the edges.

Here is a view of inside the card.....

I used the main background paper, added a stripe paper border then added some lace.

A close up of the front...

I used the Fancy Phrases stamp set to add my sentiment. I die cut two scrolls then finished my card front with a flower.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Fancy Phrases

Ink: ColorBox Chalk Rose Coral, Stampin' Up! Soft Suede, Distress Ink Old Paper

Paper: Kaisercraft Duck Egg, Grace Taylor Vintage Collection, Ink & Elm Cottage Rose Collection

Other: Sizzix Sizzlits scribbles swirls, Petaloo Flowers Canterbury Roses Teal, lace, ribbon, eyelets.

Thanks for stopping by!
